CFV also has a 17-bed Pediatric Emergency Department (PED) that is staffed by physicians who have devoted their practice to pediatric emergency medicine and who are also part of CAC. The PICU serves the critical care needs of medical, surgical, and trauma patients (CFV is the dominant trauma services provider in the region), and there is on-site support for children with orthopedic, neurosurgical, endocrine, cardiac and neurologic conditions, as well as easy access to specialists at both Duke and UNC-Chapel Hill. The facility does no cardiothoracic, transplant, or ECMO procedures.
